Topic: Customization of Report Template
We are the user of Wialon Hosting from last 6 years and from the beginning we are trying to give best solutions to the end user. You have technically vast sensors and hardware and software which you are using is having less functionality in that case your investment will not be fruitful. But we are at safe side and without any hesitation we can say Gurtam is providing us best solution with valuable support. To make this system more easier and reliable we always try to make you familiar with customers or users response so that you can think of that and try to fulfill their requirements.
In the series of providing you users responses we are continuously focus on a issue of report customization, most of our active customers are having complaint with the issue of customization. You understand the issue which I am talking about.
Now I come to the topic, There are different tables available in report template and each table is available for specific report..Engine Hours report gives you fuel report in terms of Lt/Hrs or consumption per hrs, Trip report gives you report in terms of Avg mileage per unit of fuel by FLS and fuel consumed in trip. But different tables force you to check each one by one which is time taking , we have no table where we can show all the useful results in one sheet or page. If we can try it will be possible to provide the combined result in one table that is "Summary". In summary we have most of the columns but not all. It would be better if we can provide all useful or valuable results or column in a single table because it helps user to get all the details in a go, need not to go through all tables. And that's why I have send you a mail to add some columns which is available in other table add can more effective if available in Summary report. Previously we have requested your team to implement "Avg mileage per unit of fuel by FLS" in summary report and your team has done it for us, Anna has help us for this implementation.
Similarly, In Digital sensors there in no column for Sensors status and it would be very helpful for all users if you add/implement other Sensors status at Activation of digital sensor and deactivation of digital sensor. You can imagine the scope of this implementation from an example, we are using Axle Load sensor of JV Technoton, we have no option in report template to get the exact load value when loaded. Load/weight can only be verified from Load graph. This problem can be resolved only when we use additional hardware like switch or digital sensor, when vehicle loaded, operator can use switch just after loading. After switching operation we will get the time of loading with location, if you implement the Sensors status at Activation of digital sensor and deactivation of digital sensor from this we can show the exact sensor value at a time.
Above is just an example, from this implementation we can improve our report in many way.
Same way, it would be better if you implement Sensors value and mileage counter as like engine counter column in "unit latest data" report table, most of the users are demanding for that. From this implementation users can get the current value of the sensors, milage , engine hrs, movement etc whenever required.
Now we have to do total 3 implementation in report templates.
1. Implementation of Sensors value and mileage counter as like engine counter column in "unit latest data" report table.
2. Implement other Sensor status/VALUE at Activation of digital sensor and deactivation of digital sensor.
3. Implementation of Idling engine hrs and consumed by fls in idling engine hrs in Summary report with table parameters of engine hrs sensors and trip details separately.
